Bond villain-y

adj. Slightly less cartoonish than Scooby-doo-villain-y.

Related terms: Bond villain-esque, Bond villain-ish.

Real citation: “They're basically supposed to be the Marvel equivalent of The Rogues. A gang of thieves who use high tech weapons and, in the case of two of them, super powers to pull of robberies, but stay out of the Bond villain-y take over the world plots and are above the actions of cold blooded psychos like Osborn or Purple Man.”

Made-up citation: “Our relationship is getting stale… Why don’t you put on something Bond villain-y, and I’ll search my closet for something special-forces-y. That’ll put some holy-cowsers in our trousers.”
